It looks like La Cañada High's Evanne Friedmann is going to be a busy young woman for the next three months as she reigns as the 93rd Rose Queen. How exciting for her! Imagine having as much grace and poise as Evanne has at the age of 17. The TofR's queen selection committee must have recognized a certain something in her character that gives them the confidence to award her the crown. We can all be proud that she's one of ours. We also like to claim the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Flintridge Prep students who are named to the royal court as our own, even if they live in other communities.

I was perusing one of my old journals dated 1964, trying to understand what went wrong. I was two weeks away from making Eagle Scout. But after participating in a gang fight on 237th Street, becoming an Eagle was out of the question. My biggest regrets in life are not for the things I have done, but for the things I haven't done. It's been 49 years since I was expelled from Troop 136 and the regret of not making Eagle hangs like an albatross around my neck. Becoming an Eagle Scout is one of the greatest achievements for boys.

I hate meetings. I don’t remember a doggone thing. I’ve got the attention span of a 2-year-old. So when Kaitzer asked me to fill in for her at the 7/8 orientation at La Cañada High School, I thought to myself, “Sabine’s future is in jeopardy!” Kaitzer had a last-minute meeting with the Boss. You know — the Boss — like in Bruce Springsteen. Erica Tavera, who’s 16, had invited her to the concert. Go figure! What was she thinking, sending me to this momentous meeting knowing I’d hang out in the back kibitzing with my buddies?

This year will mark the fourth year a float will be entered in the Tournament of Roses' Rose Parade, sponsored by Donate Life and created by Phoenix Decorating. The float's theme is "Giving from the Heart," and it will carry 23 riders, 10 from California. All individuals have donated organs, tissue or blood to enable others to live. La Cañada Flintridge resident Reg Green is especially proud of this float and the message it will send out to the world. Twelve years after the shooting death of his 7-year-old son, Nicholas, Reg Green recalls each detail as vividly as if it happened just yesterday.

After 20 years of service, the Volunteers in Pride are hanging up their graffiti-removing paintbrushes due to a decrease in vandalism in the Crescenta Valley and Northeast Los Angeles. Police officials say the drop in vandalism incidents can largely be attributed to the group, which is made up of area residents who volunteered their time to paint over graffiti. “Graffiti has gone down since their inception,” Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The group’s founder, Peter Rosenthal, said volunteers used to paint over graffiti two to three times per week, but those numbers have dropped in the past year.

During an evening reserved for celebrating community spirit, La Cañada High School junior Robin Miketta was on Thursday named Miss La Cañada Flintridge 2011. Inspired by parents Brett and Lynette Miketta to consider a career in teaching, Miketta will lead the town's five-member Royal Court this year in their role as youth ambassadors for the city and chamber of commerce. Miss La Cañada Flintridge 2010 Malia Mailes passed the crown to Miketta as part of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Association's 99th annual Installation and Awards Dinner, held at the tony ballroom of the La Cañada Flintridge County Club.

Since 1972, Verdugo Hills Hospital has been committed to its mission of ?providing personalized and cost effective high quality services that meet the community?s needs for healthcare.? Now the 158-bed hospital is celebrating its 35th anniversary. Prior to distinguishing itself as the local hospital of the foothills, it was in another section of Glendale and known as Behrens Memorial Hospital, established in 1947. In the late ?60s, when a bigger facility was needed, it was decided that the hospital would relocate to its current hilltop location onto land donated by the Greene family.

The Dennis Prager Show usually airs every weekday on KRLA 870 AM, but it wasn’t broadcast Tuesday, nor will it be on Monday while Prager takes time off in observance of Passover. Prager, a La Cañada resident, discussed what the Passover holiday means to him in a phone interview while on his way to a Seder Tuesday evening. “[The Seder] is a very bonding experience for those who are there, whether it’s family, friends or strangers,” he said. “I won’t know many of the people there tonight.” The week-long celebration of the Jewish people’s liberation from slavery in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago began on Tuesday with the Seder, a ritual meal that marks the beginning of the holiday, and ends after April 25. Prager said it’s become the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday as Judaism has become more secularized because themes of liberation and freedom are applicable to everyone.

He is 27 years old, stands fit and trim at 6'2'' and will return for a second tour of military duty in Iraq sometime this month. His name is Cpl. Michael T. Morton and he is a U.S. Marine. For me, the war in Iraq now has a face. I met Morton and members of his family last Saturday night during a surprise birthday party for his father, Marty Morton, who is director of Maintenance, Facilities and Operations for La Cañada Unified School District. The party in La Crescenta celebrated a dual purpose, as it was also a farewell send-off for Mike.
